Beyonce will perform live at Twickenham Stadium in London for a concert which aims to raise money for the women's charity Chime For Change.

The all-star line-up will see Beyonce headline a bill on June 1, which also includes Florence + The Machine, Haim, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Timbaland, John Legend, Iggy Azalea and Laura Pausini. Tickets are available now and start at £55 each. For more information head to Chimeforchange.org.

Ticket buyers will be invited to help support charities for women by cashing in vouchers which come as part of the concert ticket and funding a selection of the many projects supporting Education, Health and Justice For Girls. The concert will be broadcast live on TV as it takes place, though the broadcaster has yet to be announced.

Prior to the charity gig, Beyonce will return to the UK in May for a huge UK headline tour. General sale tickets for the singer's 2013 'The Mrs Carter Show' tour, which calls at Birmingham, London and Manchester, sold out at lightning speed leaving many fans frustrated.

Beyonce will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (April 26-27)
London O2 Arena (29-30, May 1, 3-5)
Manchester Arena (May 7-9)
Dublin The O2 (11-12)
